as the romney/ryan ticket today opens up its biggest lead of in this entire election. the republicans leading by a full point now i in the real clear politics average of all polls, that's the first time that's happened since mitt romney secured the nomination. you can see the course of the last year with the blue line for president obama and the red line for mitt romney. and you can bet that this means new pressure for the vice president going into tonight. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital politics editor and host of "power play" on foxnews.com live. when i prepared for this event today, chris, the daytime show now and the prime time coverage later, the experts told me in the materials i read that the vice presidential debates never really move the election that much, the most it's moved is three points. and i said to myself, three points is a lot in an election like this one. >> three points is a lot when you have a one-point gap, megyn. first, let me say, you are in a beautiful place in america, you are in a wonderful spot, and it's going to be a great fisticuffs tonight, so i'm very

of mitt romney and paul ryan. it is a big part of their stump speech. it is reckless and irresponsible. megyn: some liberal commentators slammed that remark. remember, ports, four americans were killed in an attack, including chris stevens, even some top senate democrats have insisted on more information being provided to our lawmakers on the security that was in place and ambassador was the first to be killed and more than 30 years. last night, after stephanie cutter gave that interview, our own bret baier gave questions out. >> are you suggesting that we are playing politics with this? because four people are dead. >> absolutely. this administration, let me just get this out. this administration has treated this entire tragedy with the utmost seriousness to get to the bottom of the attack, hold the perpetrators accountable and make sure that it never happens again. that is why we are being responsible. megyn: joining me now is alan colmes. he is host of the alan colmes radio show. and mike gallagher is a fox news contributor and author of 50 things liberals love to hate. this has man

they are leveling that attack against gornor romney and paul ryan. uouf gy odhasicroio it's straight out of the saul alinsky playbook. the american people are focused on the facts. what romney and ryan have in eirenheac coac a governor romney in the debate because he has the facts about the economy. alisyn: kirsten, is that how you interpret it? >> it's interesting to juxtapose atpe i libya where there were some untruths told if you want to be subtle about it. when you have the administration being dishonest about the way they handled aer very seous iue finur ar ain pef lying because of things that i think are probably differences of opinion, it's pretty startling. i think it's desperate. this liar liar strategy iser e te fly considering obama really just was pretty much decimated byrum any in that debate. why they continue to bring it up befuddles me. thalen wthesi aou be a post partisan president. he was going to rise above politics. i know we are laughing now. but that was part of the promise. in fact when he was president in 2009 you botecal w yo l wn the president was talking about healthcare'

for years. i find it ironic now they are leveling that attack against governor romney and paul ryan. this is classic projections. accusing your oh poanltd of what you yourself have guilty of. it's straight out of the saul alinsky playbook. the american people are focused on the facts. what romney and ryan have in their arsenal are the facts. that's why president obama could not come back again governor romney in the debate because he has the facts about the economy. alisyn: kirsten, is that how you interpret it? >> it's interesting to juxtapose this conversation against what's going on in this hearing with what happened in libya where there were some untruths told if you want to be subtle about it. when you have the administration being dishonest about the way they handled a very, very serious issue facing our country, to turn around and start accusing people of lying because of things that i think are probably differences of opinion, it's pretty startling. i think it's desperate. this liar liar strategy is very desperate and i don't know why they want to keep talking about the deba
